    Great members and local leaders. Ability to work on your own and make your own decisions. Self scheduling is a plus. Benefits are good.


    Pay is horrible, management will ignore you completely until they need something from you, you will be told all the time that your job might be in jeopardy, only those in the top tier i.e. regional directors, national reps, etc will get paid well. Expect resistance from management to do much of anything for you in regards to pay and or benefits. Use of your own car can get tiring even with mileage reimbursement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating "project staff" with decency. So many of us are looked and treated like second class citizens. We work for a union who treats their own employees worse than some of the people we represent. Negotiating pay raises shouldn't take months or years when many of the higher level employees make well over a 100k a year with annual raises.
